I return home

Dreary and tired

Wincing in pain

Ooh! Ouch!

Wounded from life’s daily battles

Wound up tight

Frowning and fretting

The world can be clinical and cold

Just living day to day

Is a superhuman feat

She takes my hands in hers

Her comforting presence

Her angelic touch

Her healing hands

Soft and gentle

Embalm my soul

Only you can make me smile through my trials

Only you can make mild my mistakes

Only you can put my creases at ease

Only you can help me unwind

Only you can make me chuckle at my many moods

Only you can help put my worries to bed

I can be brave in this excruciating pain

Only ‘cause I know you have my back

Falling and failing

But as long as You’re in my corner

I’m getting back on my feet.
